Drink of the Week: Green Velvet Cocktail

Another drink from Food and Wine Cocktails 2007. The Green Velvet was created by Rajat Parr, the wine director at Michael Mina in San Francisco. It is another drink that shows how wonderfully Chartreuse and rye work together (see the Scoff Law Cocktail for another drink that successfully pairs these two spirits).

Green Velvet Cocktail
Combine in an iced mixing glass:
  • 3 ounces rye
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters
  • 3/4 ounce Punt Y Mes
  • 3/4 ounce yellow Chartreuse
Stir until well chilled and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
